Poet and educator Dennis J. Bernstein will read from his new collection of poems, Special Ed: Voices from a Hidden Classroom. These poems are about the kids who were Bernstein's students when he taught in the New York City public schools, before embarking on a career as an internationally known investigative journalist. Bernstein, a long-time social justice advocate, is currently the producer and co-host of the news program, Flashpoints, KPFA Pacifica Radio. Following the reading, Dennis is interviewed by Ed Mays and Mike McCormick on his role in exposing the Iran/Contra war crimes/drug running scandal, his role in the historic battle to save the Pacifica Radio Network in early 2000, and the current situation in Israel/Palestine.
